Sad News for former Players

This week has seen some sad news for former Argyle players.

Firstly, Ian Stonebridge has been forced to retire from football at the age of 25. Following many injuries, Ian has been diagnosed with Reactive Arthropathy, that affects the joints in various ways without any known cause. Ian did a great service to Argyle during his time here, and to have to retire so young with a talent will be hard for him.

Secondly, Graham Coughlan received the following devastating news about his brother:

"The search of the Grand Canal at Clondalkin, Dublin for missing Dublin teen, David White, has been temporarily suspended.
No announcement was immediately made as to how the investigation would proceed, but an internal conference of various Garda divisions, including the diving unit took place shortly after 4pm.
Yesterday, the body of Shane Coughlan, from Mill Park in Clondalkin, was found in a stretch of the canal alongside Fonthill Road."

Belfast Telegraph

This is something that no one should ever have to experience, and our thoughts are condolences are with Graham and his family.
